is there anyway to crach a passworded .rar file? i need to badly.
Assuming it's a rar file that you passowrd protected and forgot the password for...
there's programs out there that will do it for you, but the only way that I'm aware of is a brute force attack, which is both time and cpu intensive. A brute force attack will go through aaaaaa through zzzzzz and everything in between, inlcuding numbers and depending if the password contains special characters, it will take even longer.
You can do brute force or from a dictionary file
